Seriously felt scammed. The Ivy was presented on several websites as a 4.5* hotel. It is not. This is a European style hotel. Rooms very small...one queen bed in room for two adults. The shower and lavetory are very modern with a rainfall shower head. However bathroom lighting is abysmal. Very dark, and tiny led lights that are there cast...

I bought this hotel on Groupon. I visit Chicago Northwestern hospital frequently and love when I can find a hotel that is close. This is a small hotel with a very friendly staff. My room was a king suite (I think all the rooms may be suites) and was wonderful. The room was divided into 2 sections. There was a...

My partner and I planned a short getaway for my birthday March 18th, 2017. After some research, I thought Ivy would be the best fit for what we wanted: it seemed like it would be a detail-oriented establishment with a refined, modern atmosphere. We arrived Saturday the 18th. Valet was functional, not exceptional. The best staff experience on the 18th...

The hotel is simply beautiful and the staff/service was superb. I was really impressed with Maria at the check in desk. I accidentally left my credit card and driver's license at the check in desk. By the time I made it to my beautiful room, Maria called me to alert me of the same. Minutes later, she was at my...

Absolutely loved this hotel!!! The rooms were nice, sleek and stylish. Very well decorated and roomy. I was there during the weekend the Cubs won and the excitement was everywhere. The front desk was accommodating! There is a bar when you walk in and a chill seating area. The rooftop bar was closed when I visited which was a bummer....

This hotel is my favorite place to stay downtown Chicago. The rooms are so spacious, with all the latest amenities. Their staff is top notch, always there for all of your needs. There are only 5 rooms on each floor which makes it extra quiet. I am looking forward to coming back.

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
